Kids are naturally messy. I know my kids can drive me crazy with not picking up after themselves sometimes. I have to stop myself every now and then and look at the big picture, at least they are being creative and learning something when they have their arts & crafts or tools out. What I am striving to do now is to shift their focus about tidying up after themselves as being a pain, into how having an uncluttered work space is going to benfit them.

French Connection

Code of Ethics

Being asked into the home of a client is a real privilege and something not to be taken lightly. A persons home is more often than not, their sanctuary, a place they can be themselves.

The feeling of freedom and release that comes from letting go of "stuff" is amazing. We all hold onto items, thoughts, relationships for different reasons, but when these "things" start to inhibit our lives and how we want to live them, it is time to let them go.
